Outspoken lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, Natalie Maines, has been slapped with a lawsuit over her statements concerning Terry Hobbs, stepfather of Steve Branch, 1 of the murdered 8-year old boys in the infamous 1993 "West Memphis 3" trial in Crittenden County, Ark.

Hobbs filed a complaint on Nov. 25 alleging Maines made a "false and reckless claim that Hobbs committed the murders of the 3 boys."

The bodies of Steve Branch, Christopher Byers and Michael Moore were found in May, 1993 in a West Memphis neighborhood. Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin, all from West Memphis, were given life sentences for the murders in 1994.
